Very creative and uplifting. Seems more like a poem than an article. Ron

Are We All Americans? (Article) - 11/3/2007 8:46:49 AM
"Are We All Americans?" sings patriotism under the flag of equality over the cultural diversities. An outstanding article from the pen of a true artist of the Verb. In admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Are We All Americans? (Article) - 6/30/2007 9:59:22 AM
Your writing has an agreeable sort of hospitality to it. Bridging the emotional gap of such a sensitive and important subject as being an American is not a simple matter as many would believe. Being an American is an important achievement for any person (whether by birth or nationalization), a feeling (an achievement) that is not expressed often enough. Even so, no matter where one goes in life, a person is always helped by their heritage. The pleasures of having more than one heritage is both a comfort and a joy. As ‘we the people’ continue to evolve within the guidance of our constitution, the citizens of our country will continue to become stronger as a people.

Roberta (Article) - 3/18/2006 4:59:51 PM
Piercing, and yet so romantic. You capture an element that shows off your talent. Many faceted, yet succinct and clear. That makes this a jewel. Doesn't the all above in statement make a diamond? Stephanie

I continue to be inspired by your writing. Thank you for setting the example in your closing question and wrap-up. I'd love to take this with me to my church small group, but alas, I don't think they're open enough to hear it. You are, once again, so effective in making your point. Stephanie Sawyer

Good introduction to creative writing for Children. Bring out the inner child in me.

When It Rains (Poetry) - 12/20/2013 7:58:06 AM
It is whimsical poem; with an Edward Learesque bent. Great rhymes within rhymes that has the poem skipping along to its meter. (I know the hard rains can bring a disaster, so I skip a few steps before running faster.) <----haha, love it.

Ocean Stallions (Poetry) - 11/10/2008 6:31:12 PM
As a former beach sitter and wave watcher and even an occasional surfer I can say your poetic analogy works wonders to bring those waves to life. It got me there, sitting safe and dry where the last remnants wash up gently spent... I'll check out more later, michael

b.j. condolences om the passing of your friend. friends pass but the friendship remains. your poem says what must be said blessings john+

Life Like A Star (Poetry) - 3/18/2006 12:14:43 PM
You understand the meaning and purpose of communicating that should focus on the other. When done without condition the returns in a spiritual sense are comparable to nothing else. The good advise of keeping our hearts lifted high also stems from the same awareness. If this world had been less conditioned, was disinformed to a lesser degree, was not blatantly lied to, the power of positive thought would have regained its initial meaning. A moving tribute to your friend, who I am sure enjoyed your words. Thank you for creating and sharing. Take care, RAge

This World Is Mine (Poetry) - 1/20/2006 2:12:13 AM
B.J., It's all right there at our fingertips. If we want it badly enough no one can stop us now. Excellent write.

It Is Morning Now (Revised Version) (Poetry) - 1/7/2006 6:23:03 AM
Hi B.J.: Thank you so much for inviting me to read your new version, the following is my humble opinion between the two: The difference between the old version and this new one is that the old version is more of your raw emotion, which expressed very well, and gave the readers the feelings of closeness, like they would have agreed with what you have said and feel those feelings for you. It also showed your faith to the Creator. This new version, even though it is well-constructed, does not offer the same feelings. Rather, it is formed in a four-lined-stanza that offer the symbolism of faith, like this is more of a spiritual write. Also the choice of words were of precise and not wasted. There is also a "breath of fresh air" and "a burst of energy of faith" in this new write. I prefer both versions - it is because each of these two poems carries its own weight of what the author had intended to convey, though in different manners. The newer version, is more of a publishable material if you choose so to send to an editor, because it is constructed well. However, in my personal choice of reading pleasure of a well-expressed poem, I would choose the old version. But what I have said so far are only of my own humble opinion about poetry, and what I, myself, would have preferred to read. I certainly cannot speak for all. Hope this helps! Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)

It Is Morning Now (Revised Version) (Poetry) - 1/6/2006 2:00:25 PM
"It Is Morning Now (Revised Version)" I see a different image, but the colors are about the same, although this version tends to be more symbolistical - giving the reader - an enchanting and deeper spiritual feeling. The closing lines -THE LAST STANZA - sealed this poem with a golden lace. Keep writing, Poet. Never rest Your pen. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

October Signals (Poetry) - 10/11/2005 8:02:45 PM
Seems we are both in an October theme, though what else could it be as we are in October...nothing like reminding me of the cold weather that is not too far away, though thankfully here in NJ the weather does not get as forbidding as you describe till January or sometimes later...boy you certainly do conjure up images with this write...Ed & Rufuz

I Prayed For You (Poetry) - 6/18/2005 7:39:10 AM
Your poem is highly effective as it is written in primary voice. In my opinion this encaptures and pulls in faster than any other mode. I always enjoy the unity we share in our understanding with our true source of solice and comfort. And I remember only too well the first time back at my church alone. BJ - I'd like you to look at "A Different Look-A Love Song". This is under my articles. Though personal, it details dealing with the anguish of loss in relationship. Stephanie

With My Heart Upon My Sleeve (Poetry) - 6/18/2005 7:17:02 AM
Though this poem seemed highly repetitive in the beginning, I liked the way it grew and expanded its theme. It draws in with more interest as it explains your definition of intent. The reader sees the pace and mode of growth, and at least this one felt the pain of the journey with you. It's good to see you again, and reading this poem led me to an idea for an article myself! - There's a theme on detachment running through my head right now! We gain through loss and are made far wiser through the toughest of journeys. Stephanie

A Soldier’s Love (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 9:39:55 PM
Amen! Salute! Thank You BJ for this Wonderful Respectful and Honorable tribute to all the servicemen and women from day one of the birth of the US.

Stephanie Sawyer, author "Wherever You May Be" (poetry) and FACING ME

The Broken Dream of the Unloved One (Poetry) - 6/11/2004 9:30:15 AM
